What is the difference between inpatient and half-day rehabilitation?
Inpatient rehabilitation is suitable for patients who require intensive rehabilitation in addition to the support of medical and nursing care. Most patients move into inpatient rehabilitation after surgery, so you may wish to speak with your specialist or GP regarding a referral before your surgery.
Half-day rehabilitation is suitable for those who still have rehabilitation goals, however do not require nursing and medical care. This program is highly sought after by patients who have come from an inpatient rehabilitation stay. Current inpatients can be referred to the half-day program by their rehabilitation physician. Those at home can ask their GP or specialist for a referral.
